They told us we'd fade away. They dismissed us as 'paid protestors' and criminals. They said we wouldn't show up when it mattered.
They were wrong.
In the past week, more than 100,000 people took action at 750 town halls and other events around the country, engaging members of congress on the issues that matter to us.
We spoke truth to power, and generated a wave of action across the country, the likes of which hasn't been seen before. One member of congress even went on TV and said: "In my opinion, [there are] a significant number of congressmen who are being impacted by these kinds of protests...I don't know if we're going to be able to repeal Obamacare now because these folks...are very active."1
Our action won't stop here. We're going to continue to show up for our families and for our communities, and to fight for dignity, equity and justice.
